Comment 3 Yanko Kaneti 2012-10-09 04:53:23 EDT
With the current code not much else is expected when you try an invalid/notinstalled locale. 
I've filed this upstream for final resolution  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=685791
Comment 4 Yanko Kaneti 2012-10-09 05:02:50 EDT
Upstream accepted a patch to avoid crashing. Since this is a isolated incident caused by some local locale miss-configuration I'll hold on with the fix entering fedora for the next version bump.
Comment 5 Yanko Kaneti 2012-10-09 05:11:12 EDT
Kamil, if your F18 installation ended up in a situation where
>> import locale
>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, '')
doesn't work, then this should be investigated separately.
Comment 6 Kamil Páral 2012-10-09 05:18:11 EDT
Hello, I'm quite sure this is caused by current anaconda bug 858591. That will have to be fixed for sure, so this crash should not appear so often.

But still, the application shouldn't crash if the user has invalid locale, but fallback to C or en_US.utf8 locale instead.

Yup. When I said version bump I meant gnome-clocks version bump, then filing an update for f18
